Tag questions Tag questions Presentation Transcript

  • Presented By Live Free / Speak Free
  • What is a tag question? A tag question is a sentence with a small part at the end that makes it a question. For example: You like kittens. This is a statement, not a question.
  • Now we add a small part at the end of it: You like kittens, don't you? Now this sentence is a question. We call it a tag question. The little part at the end (after the comma) is called a question tag. (A tag is a word or phrase that is added to a sentence.)
  • Why do we need these question tags? We use questions tags (such as "don't you?", "isn't it?") to turn statements into questions, or to check that a statement is correct. It's like saying "Am I right?" or "Is that correct?" Using question tags can help you sound more natural in English.
  • Tag Question Rules Positive Statements Tag question summary table Negative Statements
  • Positive Statements In most cases, the helping verb (or BE verb) from the positive statement is repeated in the tag and changed to negative. Example sentences: Statement: Brenda is sad. Question tag: isn't she? Tag question: Brenda is sad, isn't she?
